I have been studying the historic emergence of Bangladesh as a sovereign country since 1971. Considering the socio-political history of Bengal from the time of British occupation many subjects are coming up to me as the contributing factors leading to the liberation of Bangladesh.

I would like to hear from your learned readers as to who caused the liberation of Bangladesh? Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Ziaur Rahman, Yahya Khan, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, USA, USSR, India,Indira Gandhi, the then West Pakistanis, Freedom Fighters of the territory now comprising Bangladesh, Bengali language, Mohajirs, Bengali Hindus, Bengali Muslims, Indian Army, Pakistani Army, Israel, CIA, KGB, or other factors.

Next comes the question: Was there any explicit or implicit understanding between the above parties?

Your learned feedback will greatly help me in creating a good monograph which may help the future generations the truths about the appearance and reality.
